Twitter Widget covers up my drop down menu
Menu is set at z-index:100

I installed Twitter's Widget on my website and everything is working fine. I liked the colors so much I changed the whole website to match.

But then I realized the twitter posts are covering my my drop down menu when I mouse over the menu links. I have the menu set for z-index:100.

This occurs in all modern browsers on the Mac and also IE 6.

The menu is in CSS and the widget in Javascript. I surfed the intertnet and only found one other person with the same problem but no answer.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this? I could move the widget down but this will mess up the new web design I just set up.

Hmmm... any luck yet, Lorel? If not, I'll move the query to a different forum.

No replys yet. I moved the widget down below the lowest point of my drop down menu until I can get it fixed.

Hi,

Z-index is a chronically buggy issue that can relate to the render order of objects erroneously in most browsers. I ran into the same problem, try setting the drop down elements to a z-index of 10000 or so. The number should be huge, because depending on the rendering errors occurring it needs to at least be larger that the total number of DOM objects in the page. I could go more in depth here but z-index=10000 or higher should solve your problem. If it doesn't work on the first try be sure to set the containing element that is a sibling to the twitter widget to a z-index of 10000 as well.
